IUCEE is forming a Consortium of Indian Engineering Institutions to focus on Entrepreneurship Education. The overall vision of this Consortium is to launch a robust Entrepreneurship Education, Minor in Entrepreneurship, for engineering students.
University of Massachusetts Lowell (USA) and KLE Technological University (Hubli, India) have been conducting 2-week accelerated multi-disciplinary, multicultural classes since 2014. Over 430 students have participated in these sessions held in Hubli (India) and in Lowell (USA). Results have been very positive, generating excitement and new energy in entrepreneurship within the student community. To scale such an educational effort, it is essential to train and develop engineering and management faculty engaged in teaching entrepreneurship and innovation.
